New Zealand Customs and MAF are jointly planning to release tender documents for the build of a new information management system to meet the needs of both agencies.
The system is to be called the Joint Border Management System (JBMS).
The JBMS will be designed to remove duplication of agency activities, harmonise processes with international practices, facilitate trade and travel, and improve the management of biosecurity and other risks at the border.
When responding to the request for information, suppliers will need to propose product and technology applications , partner services, cost and maintenance services.
The RFI will be released on Wednesday, March 18. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 25233.
